Axial ventilation fans have blades mounted on the rotating shaft, which moves air parallel to the shaft. Axial fans have wide range of applications and act as cooling fans, ceiling fans, computer cooling, and ventilation exhaust fans. These are used extensively in residential, commercial, and industrial end-use applications globally.
Rising awareness regarding improving indoor air quality (IAQ) and rising urbanization and development are the factors driving the growth of the axial fans market across the globe.
Manufacturers currently are targeting residential and commercial constructions in order to increase awareness about energy efficiency and minimize their ventilation operating costs. Certain strategies are being followed to improve IAQ by minimizing the sources of indoor air contamination, ensuring efficient ventilation, and introducing outside air into buildings and driving out polluted air.
Improvement of ventilation in existing infrastructure is expected to be an opportunity to increase the demand for axial fans in the global market
